boss, admiral tom moore. because tom moore would soon come to resent the closeness that bud zumwalt had with paul. because oftentimes with respect to vietnam policy, bud was following out about policy before admiral moore would know antibiotic. and this eventually -- about it. and this eventually led moore to come up with this plan. no one had ever heard of any admiral who went off to vietnam at that time. it was sort of like the death knell for admirals. and the navy itself was in the bath water at that time except, of course, for the aviators. i mean, the glory was in the air war. but nothing was going on with respect to the brown water navy, and bud zumwalt would change all that. and, of course, eventually he would go from there to cno, and i have four chapters on the cno years. then i have this chapter that i had the most fun writing about, the comments about the zumwalt intelligence service which i learned a lot about how bud actually had his own spies placed in henry kissinger's shop. it was a sr. systematic -- it was a very systematic organization because he along with tom moore

moore of "the wall street journal," the top 10% of income earners in this country pay more income tax proportionally than the top 10% than any other industrialized country. there's not a shortage of tax pain. the key thing is how do you get a system that encourages more creativity to the government and the collecting more. surveys have shown, research has shown countries have low tax rates systems, low tax burden, end up collecting more revenue than those that have high tax rates or raising their tax burden. again, people have more free markets and the government will get its abundant cut as well. the key thing is how do you get the free markets going quite heavy get our freedom and free markets? how do you get them going? it would be fine sponsor remembers what it's world is, not the cover or have today, but by madison and others. >> we've been talking with steve forbes about his new book, "freedom manifesto: why free markets are moral and big government isn't" also out on the market is "how capitalism will save us." what's your enthusiasm level but then that romney campaign? >> he w

years after the rebellion, a young woman named hannah moore went from the united states to work in thing my in sierra leone, and at a holiday dinner where there were still, i think, maybe four or five of the amistad veterans living at the mission, she asked them to tell their story of the uprising. and then she wrote it all down. so, she transcribed their oral history of the rebellion, how they had committed it to their own memory. this is a stunning source, and it contains information that no other source of the time period had. for example, about what was the debate down in the hold of the amistad when they're trying to decide whether to rise up and seize the ship or not? the oral history contained information about that discussion. that's really getting close to the source. and there you actually hear the voices of the people who made the history. so, my point is, there is a huge amount of evidence for history from below. so much so that it's possible, actually, to get to know these people as individuals. you can hear them speaking. you can get a sense of their sense of humor. it's a

moore. this is an important issue in your bill is still needed. now the cftc proposed rule is helpful. there's no question they have created an exception for enter affiliate swaps that applies to nonfinancial end-users. the problem is there are two key issues, two problems not addressed by the cftc will. everyone, nonfinancial end-users have an eight step process or a criteria process financial users must meet and what criteria is posting margin between affiliates. again, if you have been a post variation merger between affiliates, the whole point behind an exemption from clearing requirements is defeated because your costs are roughly similar if you have the margin. second and very importantly there are lots of companies in your district and throughout the country that have treasury hedging centers in the cftc will doesn't do anything to exempt trade. if you have a nonfinancial end-user facing the market, if what that hedging centers set up to do this and turned to swaps, that hedging center would be a financial entity. so now you have a financial to financial swap is not eligible fo

from alaska good up, beverly moore, 81-year-old korean war navy veteran. beverly was there because the majority of her modest income comes from social security. she wanted to know how this proposal will strengthen that lifeline for her and thousands of alaskans. in fact, one in nine alaskans receive social security. with my state's population of those 65 and older expanding rapidly, social security will continue to play a key role in supplementing a decent living. if social security was not there for the elderly in alaska, a fifth of them would live below poverty. it's vital for our state. it's vital for all our states and for this whole country. mr. president, i have no illusions that this bill is not going to pass in the final weeks of the 112th congress, but i wanted to get it into the mix, i wanted to make sure that people get the bigger point, and again i would say to my presiding officer -- and he says as well and i know my friend here from oregon is on the floor also. as we talk about the deficit, it has taken center stage right now, we want to highlight one very clear thing

would your benefits cut by moore thank a quarter. -- by more than a quarter. unless we act, this is not a self-correcting problem. now, there are other things that we need do around social security such as raising the cap on the a income that's taxed. but those who say putting off questions about social security or medicare to some other day refuse to also recognize the reality that none of this self-corrects and that the sooner we start down the path on reform, the sooner that we can make sure the promise of these programs will last. but again, instead of worrying about the potential of a 25% cut for folks who are 46 years old in social security, they talk about the fact that, yes, that there may be some slight cutback in immediate benefits. not, though, 25%, not 3%, not 1%, but .3% decrease in the amount of increase each year. and even with that, there are ways, if we use this tool, to make it more fair and balanced. because we must make sure that we protect the most vulnerable in our society. i was part of a group -- and, again, the presiding officer, i believe, was supp
